The funny thing is we just came over here so we didn't have to deal with his BS. Some are acting like you have to be invited here and given a password to join What's so hard to understand that we just don't care for his work and don't want to spend the whole day fighting with him and then getting banned? Am I right BD? I know you're reading this

On Tavares, the only reason I could see him leave for Toronto is the fiancee issue. She is from there and works there and all he has to do is go home to Toronto his childhood team. If she really doesn't like long island and I cant see why see wouldnt with the beaches, food, shopping then she can really be a pain for him. Personally I think she should just go where he wants as he is about to make 88 million dollars and I think he wants to stay here

He grew up there too. It would certainly be a homecoming for him. While they certainly have some nice pieces, their mastermind just left to come here. Personally, I think they implode within the next 2 years. No playoffs. Not that they're odds on cup contenders. Just sayin'

I’m not as concerned about JT going to Toronto as I am San Jose. SJ has a good team, great pieces in place already and are competitive every year. The Sharks are well-run. Northern California, small market city where he can fly under the radar, which it seems he would prefer.

Tampa and Dallas make their pitches to Tavares in person today. Heard that there won’t be any other teams invited to meet. Decision clock starts tonight it seems. #TavaresWatch

I don't see him moving to San Jose with their aging line up. Their window is real small imo. I really think its between us and the Leafs but that's based on pretty much nothing

Looking forward to this being over so we can see which direction this team is going. Frustrating.

you serious Clark? I was not aware of any of this ... that's a huge factor. (see Vanek's wife from Minn). If she is from Toronto, works there and wants to return to Toronto.. that is probably where he will end up.

agreed... If he Leaves and this whole process has me thinking he is going bye bye. We go from very solid top 2 lines... to extremely weak up the middle.

Just looked online to try and find that she works in Toronto still and couldn't find anything. Not sure how true that is?

Yeah.. I kinda feel the same way. I am not running to play with Big Joe at 38 years old.
That said they have Logan C, Pavelski, E. Kane, and Hertl. I think our team with Barzal, Eberle, Lee, bouv and his buddy Bailey would be slightly better option if that is what he is making decision based on...

They do have Burns though too...

If Toronto shows up with more $ (how?) and a Jersey with his name and a "C" on it. That might be too tough for him to turn down. Especially with his future wife being on board. Mathews, Marner, Nylander, Kapenan... incredible young group.

Give me a break. If JT wants to stay on the Island then he is staying because he wants to. Vanek was married with a family in his 30's. JT is 28 in the prime of his career and engaged. If JT wants to go play in Tor its because that's where he wants to play not because his girl wants to continue to live up there and work at some hospital
